Thank Goodness for YouTube...

This picture has nothing to do with this post but I thought it was cuter than a photo of my super clogged utility sink.

I was in a semi-panic mode, as my basement floor is covered in water so I started you-tubing and found this link.

It's literally word for word every thought I've had the past 20 minutes…

Now I'm on the paragraph that starts off, "Now it’s time to get out your drain auger."

I don't have one so off to Home Depot.

Ah the joys of home ownership.

I really hope I don't have to buy my plumber a new boat!!

Good thing I have a tough Ninja around to brighten my day...

Get up and boogie. :)

Consider it an awesome anniversary gift to me and my bff, married for 11 glorious years now.

I love him.

Home sweet home

It's official!!

We "own" the white house and all of it's bald eagle wall-papered awesomeness! 

Come visit. 


We miss you.

And by the time you come we should have improved the old house smell and freshened up the walls a bit.

I gave the 2-dozen excessively large spiders hanging around a 12-hour notice. 

Hopefully they'll be gone tomorrow when I come back to clean, clean, clean.

Nuestra casa es su casa...

Labor Day Weekend @ Camp Cougar

One weekend of camping wasn't enough. We were able to squeeze in one more with some friends from OM's school. 

Camp Cougar is in Cougar, WA near the base of Mt. St. Helens. 

It poured buckets on us on Saturday. 

Lots and lots and lots of buckets. 

But the clouds parted, we aired out our wet sleeping bags and tents and got back in the water. 

Defintely recommended…

I will not miss this:
(photo taken this morning while I was working. Incessant building improvement around here).

But I am excited about this.

Please come visit us soon!!

2nd & 4th!!!

These two beautiful babies headed off to their first day of school today.

Yesterday we did our pre-first-day rituals…

We baked chocolate chip cookies for their teachers, the principal and the two awesome school secretaries.

And we made our wishes for the new school year…

Owen needed a new backpack so I bought him this one (made out of fleece)

And then personalized it…

And off they go to kick some 2nd and 4th grade booty!!!
